Biology Week

We are very pleased to hear from organisations and individuals who are keen to help make Biology Week a success. 

You don’t have to be a member of the Royal Society of Biology to organise events; we welcome the support of scientists, teachers or anyone who has a passion for biology.

Events ideas

You can organise lectures, debates, school visits, field trips, hands-on demonstrations, a Big Biology Day or anything that will help people discover more about the wonders of biology. There are ideas and information in our event pack.

We have fun quizzes for schools, university students, and for a pub quiz (with answers) from 2015 available online.

If you would like the new quizzes for 2016, contact us.
